How live commerce fits into the future of shopping post-pandemic

The pandemic has changed customer behavior in many ways. Changes that we thought would take years to happen, are now taking place in just a few months. 

The latest EY Future Consumer Index study shows that 26% of customers now plan to live in less densely populated areas, an increase from 22% in 2020. This means that they no longer have to live in close proximity to their favorite retail store to make that purchase. The most powerful tool they need now is a good, stable internet connection. 

We have also seen eCommerce strategies change from being a top priority on every retail outlet’s long-term plan to now having become an essential lifeline to survive the pandemic. There’s another powerful, novel approach aligning with eCommerce that has been adopted in sales. 

Chinese retail giant Alibaba once linked up an online livestream broadcast with an eCommerce store as an experiment. This allowed viewers to look for products and shop for the ones they liked at the same time. The success of this live commerce experiment meant that it quickly became a regular fixture in the retail firm’s future sales campaigns.

In China, live commerce has established itself as a major sales channel in the retail industry in just a few years. This strategy could well be replicated across the globe.

While we don’t know exactly how live commerce will develop in the years to come, one thing is for sure. It holds great long-term potential for brands and eCommerce platforms. An analysis done by McKinsey indicates that live commerce sales could well account for 10 to 20 percent of eCommerce by the year 2026.

It’s clear that for retailers, the pandemic has only accelerated their existing efforts to innovate. What are the important factors you, as a business owner, need to keep in mind for a successful eCommerce strategy? Read on to know about some of them:

The importance of customer experience

To be successful in eCommerce, businesses have to think beyond just the deployment of eCommerce. They need to evaluate what kind of customer experience they are looking to offer. Customer experience has been steadily evolving from one built on the transactional shopping process to one focused on understanding and enriching customer relationships. 

As a retailer, it’s essential to create a journey that’s relevant to your customer. Your eCommerce solutions should also provide greater value to facilitate that journey. Make no mistake, the desire for social interaction could well drive people back to retail stores after the pandemic. 

However, several studies have indicated that 38% of customers plan to shop more online and only visit those stores which provide great customer experience. 

Live commerce can become a key and strong pillar of eCommerce in future. Retailers can enhance the customer experience in live commerce by:

  • Experimenting with a regular schedule of live events using varying products, formats and different target audiences
  • Integrating live streaming into its own website or eCommerce experience to ensure complete ownership over the customer
  • Tracking live stream performances through real-time predictive analytics to derive greater insights into audiences, content, products and formats
  • Using a dedicated in-house team to plan and develop content for livestreams. This includes the storylines, scripts, hosts and/or influencers
  • Having a full-time team to manage the live-commerce channel
  • Setting up automated performance-marketing campaigns to drive the target traffic to relevant streams

 Retailers and businesses can use live commerce to enhance customer experience, all through the customer journey.

How eCommerce fits in

So how exactly does eCommerce fit into the customer’s buying journey? Here are some points that customers look at from the technology standpoint:

  • An agile, adaptive technology platform that understands different customers–  Your eCommerce platform must be able to employ agile and innovative tactics which will help you better understand and anticipate customer behavior.
  • An integrated organizational structure– Your eCommerce platform can’t afford to work in a silo. It should be integrated tightly to ensure that eCommerce, merchandising, supply chain, store operations and marketing all work together seamlessly.
  • A seamless omnichannel experience- According to a study by Harvard Business Review, 73 percent of all customers use multiple channels to make their purchases. All these channels need to be tightly integrated with each other, to give the customer a seamless experience across all platforms. We are no longer looking at a physical or digital world, but a completely connected one. Having omnichannel capabilities ensure that you remain connected to your customer across channels.
  • A uniform customer experience all through- The customer must have the same experience, right from the time he/she places an order to the time the order is delivered at their doorstep. If your eCommerce platform cannot maintain these standards, the chances of the customer shifting his/her loyalties are high. 

Here’s how retailers can use live commerce to improve customer engagement:

  • Use influencers with a few thousand followers to get a more trusted connection with consumers at a lower cost. A recent survey indicates that the engagement rate for nano influencers on Instagram is actually ten times higher than those with a million followers.
  • Expanding into new sectors as live commerce expands its reach. For instance, leading tech companies can use their live streaming platform to provide the latest retail products and services. 
  • Use innovative formats such as Augmented Reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) to make the shopping experience more immersive. This will allow buyers to view their product from every angle. In the future, consumers can even have virtual face-to-face conversations with a show host, just like they were having a conversation with a store manager.
In Conclusion

The popularity of live commerce has only gone on to show that success in eCommerce will depend on going down to the last mile in future. Research says that only one in five customers forgive retailers and brands for service disruptions due to COVID-19. This applies to even the most advanced eCommerce capabilities. As services scale, retailers must find a way to ensure that customer experience doesn’t falter. Ready to embrace the future of eCommerce? Explore SAP Hybris, which will break your siloed customer experiences and enable a seamless, engaging customer experience, all through their journey.

Key ways to drive greater productivity with Sales Cloud

As a sales rep, you might often find yourself overwhelmed by a high volume of manual processes in your day-to-day sales cycle. This can easily take your focus away from what you do best, selling. 

If you are a person who wants to reduce the high volume of manual tasks and work with an organized, structured process, a quality CRM software is just what you need. 

Salesforce Sales Cloud can be the solution which will not just let you manage customer relationships effectively, but also handle and analyze data, metrics and notes, and access all of this in one central location. 

Salesforce Sales Cloud easily outscores all other CRM platforms. It offers you a standardized process which needs minimal customization, increases and improves collaboration with your teammates and boosts your productivity. 

Sales Cloud is faster to deploy than other CRM platforms, and integrates natively with all existing applications. The benefits of Sales Cloud are evident in these key numbers. Organizations using Salesforce Sales Cloud have seen a 35% increase in sales productivity, 30% increase in lead conversion and 25% increase in customer revenue.

Still on the fence about whether Salesforce Sales Cloud will enhance your productivity?

Read this blog to know how you can drive increased productivity with Sales Cloud and improve the overall efficiency of your sales organization.

Quick Configuration

Depending on the nature of your business, the configuration and deployment of Salesforce Sales Cloud can take as little as four to six weeks for a quick, out-of-the-box start. It can be configured to support organizations of different sizes. Configuring your CRM with Salesforce Sales Cloud will always give you a better, easier alignment with your processes.

Drive business change through smart adoption

Even the best tools require a smart, calculated adoption strategy to drive business change. Here are some suggestions as to how you can effectively adopt Salesforce Sales Cloud into your everyday routine

  • Using Salesforce Sales Cloud extensively- When you enter all your data into the Salesforce Sales Cloud, you will get full credit for building your pipeline and closing more deals.

Salesforce Chatter, the enterprise social network, makes it very easy for sales reps to view who has the most leads, who is lagging behind and find out why. 
  • Staying mobile- You should be able to bring your best to the table, irrespective of where you are and what device you are using. The Salesforce1 Mobile App will ensure that you are on the ball with your customers, wherever you may be. It also gives managers complete visibility by allowing them to instantly access sales leadership dashboards.

What Factors Should You Consider when selecting an eCommerce Platform?

What Factors Should You Consider when selecting an eCommerce Platform?

Choosing the right eCommerce platform which will fulfill your business needs and ensure its growth can’t be done in an instant. Whether you’re a new business or an established physical retail firm with decades of experience, you need to know if the eCommerce platform you’re evaluating can scale according to the size and complexity of your business. 

Once you’ve made note of the development and operation of your current eCommerce platform, here are some key factors you need to consider before choosing the right platform that will aid the growth of your business:

1. Expertise/Experience of the Vendor

Do a thorough check to see if the vendor you have selected offers you services with the right expertise and experience to meet all your technical requirements. You also have to be certain that they have the necessary industry knowledge. Do thorough market research, go through their case studies and customer reviews to make sure that your vendor has the technical qualities that your business needs.

2. Support

Say you’re operating a large-scale business on an online platform that is entirely new to you. Things are highly likely to go wrong in the beginning, until you get used to the platform. You need to have 24*7 support to ensure that these mistakes can be sorted out. Make sure you’re looking for an eCommerce partner who can quickly assist you over a phone call.

3. Scalability

As your business grows, will your eCommerce platform be able to keep up with this growth as well? You have to be sure that your eCommerce platform is the focal point of your business. If your platform is unable to scale along with your business, its lack of growth may well end up affecting the scalability of your business.

4. SEO-friendliness

An eCommerce platform with SEO-friendly features is another vital benefit to have. This makes it a lot easier to rank your business on various search engines.

5. Mobile responsiveness

A large share of the population has chosen to shop online owing to the pandemic and will most likely continue to shop digitally, through their mobile phones even after the pandemic is over. Having a mobile responsive eCommerce platform will go a long way in improving your business and increase sales in the long run.

6. Security

 The security of your eCommerce platform is something that can’t be ignored, at any cost. Security of your online data and customers’ financial transactions should be your top-most priority. In this day and age of increasing cyber crimes, you have to choose a platform that accepts financial transactions, while following all the security protocols. 

Wrapping Up

Magento also generates SEO-friendly URLs and meta descriptions, and you don’t have to create them yourself.

How to Choose the Best ECommerce Platform for your Business in 2021

How to Choose the Best ECommerce Platform for your Business in 2021

Choosing the right eCommerce software for your business is not quite as simple as it seems. It is one of the most important decisions that you have to make early on in your eCommerce journey.

Why use an eCommerce platform?

eCommerce platforms are essentially software applications that enable businesses to execute complex functions both in the front-end and back-end. This includes CRM, inventory management, mobile commerce, web design and warehouse fulfillment, among others. 

The reality is simple. In today’s digital-first world, if you don’t have an eCommerce platform, you can’t compete online. This platform will be the backbone of your retail business. The right platform can help streamline your business.

What is the best eCommerce platform?

Don’t choose an eCommerce platform based on its popularity. The best eCommerce platform is the one that successfully delivers the outcomes and objectives that you have set for your business. 

These goals can be things like an increase in revenue, improving customer engagement or entering or creating a new market. 

What are the key business objectives you want to accomplish through your eCommerce platform?

Building an eCommerce business isn’t just about putting up your product listings on the Web. It is more complicated than that. Much like running a physical retail or production facility, the same level of strategic planning needs to go into building and running it.

If you get this right, you can take full advantage of the digital environment by automating and streamlining many tasks and activities that would otherwise require human intervention.  

You need to ensure that your eCommerce platform:

  • Encourages Business Growth – How quickly is your business able to grow?
  • Reduces Running Costs – This includes the cost of building your eCommerce platform, ongoing development and maintenance costs.
  • Improves Customer Engagement – You should be able to control how your customers interact with your business.
  • Helps Achieve Business Objectives – The right solution will let you achieve all the objectives that you set out to achieve.

An effective eCommerce solution helps enhance your business process, customer engagement and lead generation. Your challenge lies in  identifying key business objectives and determining if the system you have chosen gives you a healthy ROI.

Wrapping Up

Magento has been proven to be the best eCommerce platform amongst the competition. In addition to content staging, page builder, instant purchase and merchandising, Magento also offers advanced features like customer service, order management, business intelligence, inventory management and cloud deployment. Magento development service providers craft a rich user experience with powerful end-to-end solutions. 

Why Jarvis is the answer

At Jarvis, we partner with eCommerce businesses to help them render seamless buying experiences across all consumer touch points. We work closely with businesses to understand their needs and accelerate the implementation of the right technology to drive better business outcomes.

Our experts at Jarvis will help you implement Magento to deliver an engaging customer experience and grow your business. Reach out to us and begin your eCommerce transformation.

There’s been a clear rise in customers buying online. Shoppers can continue to make use of shopping apps, messaging platforms, social media, smart speakers and other such means to make purchases. Brands can also provide customers with experiences and transaction opportunities on channels that they’re most comfortable shopping from. Customers always spend time on channels of their choice. Hence it becomes very important to be able to target the right customer on the right channel, giving them the right offer at the right time.

Providing a seamless shopping experience

Customers want a seamless shopping experience across every platform, be it the web, social media, mobile or the store. With omnichannel order management capabilities, shoppers can buy anywhere and retailers can sell anywhere, at any time.

Increasing conversion and customer loyalty

It is important to have genuine conversations with shoppers, in their preferred channels. By personalizing every conversation and empowering customer service agents to respond faster, you will ensure customer satisfaction and loyalty in the long run.

Personalizing every path to purchase

A key facet of CRM is personalizing the buying experience. Personalization platforms driven by Machine Learning which offer companies an opportunity to engage their customers with digital experiences and adjust automatically to changing sentiment and behaviour in real-time are extremely crucial.

There are many personalization techniques that retail businesses can advance during this crisis.

Salesforce CRM integrates well with eCommerce business personalization solutions to retain existing customers and get new customers as well.

Improving merchandise agility and visibility

Retailers have been working behind the scenes to minimize disruption to their supply chains. Building on this, retailers should also be able to provide customers with inventory visibility updated to the minute. This gains more importance now, as customers are becoming more selective about how they shop, and what they choose to buy. Customers shouldn’t have to risk visiting a physical store, only to find out that the particular product they were looking for isn’t available. Your website should show what products are available, so customers know exactly what they want before making a visit to the store.

Wrapping up

The customer demand for a seamless, frictionless shopping experience online or offline hasn’t really changed. However, since the pandemic, these demands have gained a lot more importance. Having a good omnichannel, cloud-based CRM goes a long way in getting rid of possible points of friction and making the customer experience seamless and free of conflict. SalesforceCRM offers solutions which help enhance the customer buying experience by staying connected and delivering round-the-clock service. Seamless collaboration across different departments such as sales, marketing, store managers, inventory, supply chain and customer service increase customer satisfaction and boost revenue for the retail business. Order management through multiple channels helps in delivering smarter service and enhances customer loyalty in retail.

Retailers can also leverage customer data stored on SalesforceCRM to send targeted marketing campaigns across channels, thus improving the quality of prospects through relevant engagement and boosting the sales pipeline.
